C. Kubasta, please don’t take offense as we make reference to, ahem, country music in reviewing your fantastic new collection, Of Covenants. The plainspoken, country-road cadence and homespun themes lean to AM, not FM, and yet the words, sounds, and rhythms are high-beam, A-team poetry. The author of another collection of poetry, All Beautiful & Useless, and a couple of chapbooks, Kubasta is a small-town Wisconsin native with an MFA from Notre Dame. She now teaches at Marian University in Fond du Lac, WI.
